For Sky-is-the-Limit the theme for this month was Winterblues. Although winter is not my favorite season, I am happy with the quilt I could make with this theme.  I took the theme quite literally as you can see :-).
For the background I used torn strips of fabric placed at random over and next to each other. With my Cameo Silhouette I cut the text out of freezer paper. There is a learning curve with this cutter, I have to say. Have to practise a lot more to get the hang of this machine. The text was placed on top of the fabric, ironed and painted. The trees I cut out of pounded fabric. Quilting was done using a simple design.
As it is a Friday today I am posting this to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday's.

Once more Life at the Beach

 A couple of months ago I made a 12"x12"quilt for Sky is the Limit group. I really liked the quilt, but I wanted to do a bit more with it. To accomplish this I painted a canvas and stitched the quilt on it. Added a few small shells to it and now it looks like this:

The canvas is 16"x20".
